I have been dreading the weekly meal planning lately, so I decided I would spice up our menu with some meals shared by other bloggers. This was actually a little bit fun, searching through their respective blogs for dinner ideas that I hadn’t tried before. For the most part these seem pretty easy so I figured I would give it a shot. I included 2 of my go to recipes so that I can use up some of the items I have in my pantry/fridge
Sunday – Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Chicken
Monday – White Chicken Chili
Tuesday - Quinoa Stuffed Peppers
Wednesday – Grilled Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, mixed veggies
Thursday – Cheesey Butternut Squash and Quinoa Casserole
Friday - LEFTOVERS
Saturday – Curried Lentil Soup
Now I just have to do it for under $70!
I have been MIA most of this weekend with a wicked migraine – grrrr. But Friday night I made salmon quinoa burgers, I cannot take any credit for the idea – I totally stole it from Tina. I made a few revisions and worked with what we had. First I used the last piece of Salmon (about 6oz) and cooked it in the frying pan until no longer bright pink. Then I mixed it with about 1/2c cooked quinoa and some chopped onion.
Then I added one egg white and maybe 2 tbsp of flour
I also added some balsamic vinegar, fresh cilantro, S&P and some garlic. Then I mixed all the ingredients together and formed the mixture into patties. I cooked the patties for 3 minutes on each side and then served them with some pasta and chopped veggies.
Hubs doesn’t always care for quinoa but he LOVED the burgers. I mean LOVE LOVE LOVED them!
Ok – I am off to the grocery store – am I crazy for going on Superbowl Sunday?!
